11:00 pm
i thought i should have been famous when i was eight months what's wrong with these people ninety five percent of people who sustained the same injury and up paralyzed or worse so what saved you got saved plus what's it been like in your life to make a lot of money so you started off awesome but it also brings a lot a lot of turmoil in life all next on larry good now. welcome to larry king our special guest jason derulo the singer songwriter and dancer he has scored six top ten billboard singles ranking him third all time amongst mailbox is reason singles the other side in marry me taking the world by storm his know is the album tattoos is out now is it tiring album
11:01 pm
tattoos no you know tattoos are much like our life experiences and saying that you know they stick with us for the rest of our lives you know you know with my neck injury and everything experience like that will be with me for the rest of my life and this album is made up of my life experiences so it's an autobiographical. it's your third studio album you've just turned twenty four right yeah what was what made it for you how did it start. i started off as a songwriter actually i thought of writing songs when i was eight years old and. i was just kind of trying to work my way up in miami in this it is rough you know trying to work with these different producers because they you know don't really want to work with a new name you know the eight year old yeah. yeah so you know last i was really trying to trying to you know put a demo here demo there but it was hard to make a demo because nobody really wanted to work so i posed as a songwriter saying that i would write for this person or that person if they would allow me to come in a studio. and it worked and oddly enough the song started
11:02 pm
a good place though you the song you wrote yes was you know writing songs for you know little wayne and daddy kane shanking think i see people at all sorts of artists and. in the rest was history sixteen was when i got my first writing place and it would be you have to sing for someone to it's almost like you were going to record you yeah so j.r. rotem flew me out to l.a. he wanted to sign me as a songwriter his publishing company and when i got there you know we did last six or seven songs that evening and i mean he was he was shocked you know he was surprised he was like why aren't you an artist why don't you wanna be an artist and like i do want to be an artist that's now was the whole play and you know the rest was history do you still write for others i still do. so what determines whether you will sing the song or you'll write this for someone else depends on how good it is you know i give the. excess and every song is not for everybody so you know
11:03 pm
there's a there's a lot of songs that. though you know it comes comes from my heart my brain will fit somebody else like a glove and it doesn't necessarily fit in my. in my image you write for female performers too i do absolutely cassie was actually one of them one of the first the people that i root for and i. was kind of interesting seven around this but yeah you know i did some stuff with what we're trying to get on shares new project and you know stuff like that did you want to go online to american idol or one of those shows or you know you you had before that right. yeah i did want to go on american idol. part you know it was just by any means necessary i mean like i would have done anything you know there is just the writing thing kind of took off first and you know i always saw a light somewhere you know there was always something that was like oh my god if you maybe if you meet this person you know he'll he'll see something already for me
11:04 pm
this this person and i met so many people you know so it was yeah you know you're album was released as an extended play right this one is actually an e.p. and album is coming out in like three months what did why is it n.e.p. first i want to do things a little differently. this time around i wanted to give people a taste before you know they've got the whole thing so i'm actually releasing three singles first before release the whole album tell me what happened in the accident . for those who don't know i fractured my c two vertebrae since the break hard neck and basically prepare for my world tour man i mean i was you know doing all these acrobatics as i do and a simple back talk you know which i you know done a million times i slipped and i landed on my head acrobatics a part of your act yeah you know you're moving to move absolute jumper of dance
11:05 pm
hardcore was a tame. when you hit the when you hit the ground it was crazy probably the most pain i've ever felt in my life. now if you break it make you could die and break. the whole the whole thing actually i think ninety five percent of people who sustained that same injury ended up paralyzed or worse so what saved do you got saved and why you would why weren't you just one of the one of the doctors do this just inches away you know i mean if you could have gone to inch. to the left for an inch more to the right you know that could have been it was surgery required surgery was not required just seven months in a neck brace and a year total recovery how long hospital was just a couple weeks really in the neck brace that you have to keep still you could more correct. that where you like to work not not the way i like to and i actually started working a little too soon you know because the studio is always been my life making music
11:06 pm
has always been my life so i went to the studio probably you know about three weeks after my injury you know which was too soon you know someone mover so like when i'm recording music i can't help but to you know kind of move but our yeah you know music in a way saved my life as well you know it kept me sane throughout that period and you one hundred percent now on the pursuit is equally total absolute now you're touring in europe that spring why europe why not here actually i'm doing a world tour so it starts in europe but we go to japan we go to australia new zealand. and you know we're still running it so you have you danced or jumped on the stage absolutely yeah it's it's been about a year and a half now so you know everything is back to where everything's all good i think i actually do a little more now than i did and you not worry about not know this and if it.
11:07 pm

11:18 pm
there's. only a select few people that i think you know come with a record back to back to back and automatically. morris you know one of those people you know what i think can continue to sustain you know this level of artistry big sean based on i think he's dope as well you know. one of the premiere representative kendrick lamar critical mark one of the miracles if it all these people are good which i don't know but so you know. so morning i guess. he's mcgill is actually one of the saviors of of r. and b. music you know mommy was missing the four for a second and he brought it back. alley golding is the princess of great britain and she is the premier dance artist and your first single

back in two thousand and nine was what just say that went to number one you shocked yeah. i actually wrote that song for someone else but i wrote it about my brother's experience you know him cheating on his girlfriend know what night it. i thought i would be a great song for that other person but they thought it was the moment sean kingston i don't know if you know that person is going to know who. my reason. why i didn't get to sean and change the heat i guess is his label didn't think that it was a hit but it was not a massive song five million sold so if he didn't if he had done it you wouldn't have done it exactly and i wouldn't had that big bang the first single so that's the little bridge in show business yeah a little bit so now you're happy he didn't take that oh absolutely. i would have paid for it regardless but i mean you know this is what i've always wanted to do rob always wanted to be. the person delivered best what's it been like in your life
